Authentic Farmhouse Set Privately In 5 Hectares
Sole Agency. This stone farmhouse was lovingly restored in 2012/2013 to the highest standards, with attention paid to every detail and respecting the authenticity.
The result is a beautiful 4 bedroom home with incredible countryside views. It sits in 1Ha (2 acres) of very well-tended gardens with numerous terraces, vegetable garden, adjoining workshop/barn, chicken coop, and a 8x4m heated salt-water swimming pool.
The rest of the land consists of a 2.5Ha (6 acre) paddock currently used for grazing horses, and a wooded area of approx. 1.8Ha (4.5 acres) of mainly oak and sweet chestnut trees that were previously harvested for firewood.
Inside there is a substantial kitchen-diner (50m2
), with a bespoke oak kitchen with island and built-in butchers block. There is also a gas range cooker with 2 electric ovens, 6 hobs and a separate wood burner in the dining area with built-in oven. A separate WC and utility area has plumbing for a washing machine, dishwasher and further storage space.
Downstairs the floors are tiled with travertine throughout and have underfloor heating. In the lounge there are exposed stone walls, wonderful chestnut beams and a stone fireplace. A solid oak staircase leads to the 1st Floor where there are oak floors throughout.
The spacious master suite is very impressive, with dimensions of 9.5 x 5.5m and totalling 52m2
. It also has a 5m-high vaulted ceiling with more exposed beams and stone walls. The en-suite has a WC, sink, bidet and walk-in shower.
From the master suite there are two sets of patio doors that lead to an oak-framed deck of over 60m2
